Video: Allen Iverson’s crossover can still break ankles

Oct 8, 2012, 1:12 PM EDT

I love this video, with an Iverson crossover just knocking down a Chinese defender in an exhibition game, because it’s such a throwback to a time when Iverson was the most entertaining player in the NBA. He will always be near the top of that all-time list for me.

But please, please people don’t take a 17-second clip of what Iverson can do against a Chinese league defender in an exhibition game and extrapolate that Iverson can still do that in the NBA. Different world, different games. He’s not coming back.

Hat tip to SLAM.

    He missed the shot. That’s like going to Vegas, tripling your money, and then losing it all. It’s cool, but I’d much rather have the money/points.

    I still love you AI. I say play in China so we can have a Marbury vs. Iverson final series. I would watch that if it was on TV.

    looks like the guy trips over himself before AI even crosses him over… and then AI misses. (insert soundclip from The Price is Right when you lose).
